Robert L Wise Quotes

".....listening means learning to hear someones inner world and deepest feelings with far greater attention in order that we dont let our own assumptions get in the way. The dying may speak in images far more akin to dreamland than the world of everyday reality. In order to understand them we have to make adjustments to comprehend a poetic form of expression that is sometimes elusive but actually far more expressive than the world of facts."

Chad Channing Quotes

Quotes About Lake Houses

"There was just one moon. That familiar, yellow, solitary moon. The same moon that silently floated over fields of pampas grass, the moon that rose--a gleaming, round saucer--over the calm surface of lakes, that tranquilly beamed down on the rooftops of fast-asleep houses. The same moon that brought the high tide to shore, that softly shone on the fur of animals and enveloped and protected travelers at night. The moon that, as a crescent, shaved slivers from the soul--or, as a new moon, silently bathed the earth in its own loneliness. THAT moon." - Author: Haruki Murakami

Quotes About Lacking Ambition

Quotes About Simon Of Cyrene

Quotes About Kosova

"Now is as good a time as ever to revisit the history of the Crusades, or the sorry history of partition in Kashmir, or the woes of the Chechens and Kosovars. But the bombers of Manhattan represent fascism with an Islamic face, and theres no point in any euphemism about it. What they abominate about the West, to put it in a phrase, is not what Western liberals dont like and cant defend about their own system, but what they do like about it and must defend: its emancipated women, its scientific inquiry, its separation of religion from the state. Loose talk about chickens coming home to roost is the moral equivalent of the hateful garbage emitted by Falwell and Robertson, and exhibits about the same intellectual content." - Author: Christopher Hitchens

Quotes About Mathematics And Life

"There is another physical law that teases me, too: the Doppler Effect. The sound of anything coming at you- a train, say, or the future- has a higher pitch than the sound of the same thing going away. If you have perfect pitch and a head for mathematics you can compute the speed of the object by the interval between its arriving and departing sounds. I have neither perfect pitch nor a head for mathematics, and anyway who wants to compute the speed of history? Like all falling bodies, it constantly accelerates. But I would like to hear your life as you heard it, coming at you, instead of hearing it as I do, a somber sound of expectations reduced, desires blunted, hopes deferred or abandoned, chances lost, defeats accepted, griefs borne." - Author: Wallace Stegner

Quotes About Emotional Needs

"All I know is that you, Hadlee Flax, are different than any other girl Ive ever met and Im willing to give this my all. Yes, weve both got issues. Were both mentally and emotionally fucked up. But Ive got this theory that we just might be what each other needs to make it through our broken and fucked up lives and live to see the next day." - Author: Lauren Hammond

Quotes About Advice To Youth

"Good parents use the mistakes they did in the past when they were young to advice the children God gave to them to prevent them from repeating those mistakes again.
